it could have come from a female accomplice. katherine russell is not a suspect and has not been charged in the plot. but fbi agents met with russell at her parents' rhode island home to collect a dna sample. investigators will compare that against the dna found on the bomb remnants to determine if she ever came in contact with the device. russell's family has issued a statement saying they were shocked by the attack. investigators want to question russell to find out if she had any knowledge of her husband's plans. the fbi is also taking a fresh look at tamerlan tsarnaev's six-month trip to russia and dagestan in 2012 to determine if he received training from known terrorists. of particular interest a russian born canadian militant. like tsarnaev, he was a boxer and both men were in dagestan last summer. he was killed there in a shootout between muslim radicals and police in july 2012, just days before tsarnaev returned to the united states. so far investigators do not know if the two men ever met. surviving bombing suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev may have answers but he's not talked to inves
